Mondnacht
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG
Ich lieg' an meines Lagers End'
Und lug' in stille Sterne;
Die blaue Woge, die uns trennt,
Wie rauscht sie leis und ferne!

Verschleiert schaut der Mond herein,
Mein Herz hält stille Feier; - -
Wie sind so bleich die Wangen dein,
Wie ist so dicht dein Schleier!
